When doing family therapy it is important to recognize that the client is the family itself. To learn how the family functions and to adjust the system of family to increase the harmony among all the members. If an individual in the family has a mental health concern that needs to be treated separately that well be referred out to one of our therapists but the family system can have considerable effect on the emotional health of any person within the family.

Every family has its own unique interactive pattern. Parts of that pattern work well and bring people closer. Other parts can lead to misunderstandings, hurt feelings, and chronic conflict and emotional distress. My colleagues and I use what is called a systems approach to the treatment of families in distress. This is a collaboration between the therapist and all family members to identify and change patterns of communication that are destructive to the well-being and happiness of the individuals involved. The overall goal is to bring the family closer and to create an emotionally safe environment where love can flourish.
